Again, welcome to SBI2’s first virtual and 7th Annual Conference! While the impetus for the virtual meeting is the COVID19 pandemic we are trying to take the educational opportunity this year to be generous to our members, future members and sponsors by providing free registration to this event. We are a volunteer run society and are sustained primarily through our annual conference as a non-profit (501c3) organization. Thus, we would like you to visit our SBI2 booth during the conference (add points to your leaderboard), consider membership and/or volunteering your key skills. As this virtual means of communication may last a while longer experience in those skills are also highly desired.
The scientific program committee has selected and invited world-class key opinion leaders in the fields of imaging and informatics and during the event you will hear the very best about their latest innovative research and applications. This two-day program kicks off with the main scientific sessions on Wednesday and Thursday where we are honored to have Keynote Speakers, Lina Nilsson, Vice President of Data Science Product from Recursion Pharmaceuticals and Scott Fraser, Provost Professor at USC. Additionally there are two main scientific sessions each day which includes: Wednesday’s entitled “Assay Development & High Content Screening Case Histories” and “High Content Imaging Innovations”, and Thursday’s entitled “High Content Imaging Applications to Tissue Engineering” and “Maximizing the Value of your Imaging Data”. Speaker line-ups in these sessions are also outstanding!
Don’t forget all the extras that we have endeavored to replicate in the virtual settings- round table discussions, exhibitor booths, the poster hall and direct open chats in the networking space with colleagues! A briefcase to add literaure acquired during the conference you may download at any time. As the conference begins we hope it lives up to your expectations and provides both new knowedge and contacts that will assist and expand your research endeavors. As mentioned earlier, consider joining us, volunteering, running for an open board position or helping on a work group. With that, we are truly optimistic and are planning ahead so book your calendars for 2021- Live- Boston- Joseph B. Martin Conference Center-October 4-6th.
Enjoy have a great event!
